Her post about the pattern: New Jasmine
What kind of fabric did you use? A vintage madras cotton I’ve had in my stash, plus some newly purchased linen for the collar.
How did you decide to reflect your personal style in the pattern? I really like plaids, and think plaids on the bias give a lot of interest, without a lot of work. I also fall into the older category (not that old, but definitely past my 30s, so I wanted it to look age appropriate and not too “girly”. I think the contrast and simple tie with the collar accomplish that.
What thoughts do you have about the project? I really loved this project, and found it easy to construct, but unique in appearance. It is definitely a top that will see a lot of wear for at least 3 seasons of the year!
